One of the first games to use 3-dimensional graphics, Crystal Castles is a basically a 3-dimensional maze game with excellent graphics. Using a track-ball the player controls Bentley Bear, whose goal is to collect all the magic gems on each board while evading gem eaters, balls, skeletons and ghosts. The game also features secret warps to take the player to higher levels.
The game’s cabinet features a lighted red track-ball and beautiful, colorful artwork depicting the game’s characters and mazes typical of most Atari games from this era.
One of the really cool things about this game is that if you have the high score, the game uses your initials to create the layout of the first level. Very cool!
